My latest Lakeland DVDs ‘Backpacking in the Lake District with Chris Townsend’ and ‘Helvellyn with Mark Richards’ are now available to buy from Striding Edge HERE.

There’s even a boxset that includes ‘Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike’ too.
Below you can watch trailers for each, with some brief blurb on what the DVDs are about.


‘BACKPACKING IN THE LAKE DISTRICT WITH CHRIS TOWNSEND’

The author of the best selling Backpacker’s Handbook takes us on a high level trek through the Borrowdale summits in a programme full of hints, tips, techniques and equipment for enjoyable, comfortable and safe wild camping.

Perfectly paced the viewer is immersed in iconic locations and spectacular vistas while Townsend gently imparts a lifetime of learning in possibly the finest classroom in England – The Lake District National Park.





‘THE LAKE DISTRICT. HELVELLYN WITH MARK RICHARDS’

Join “Lakeland Fellranger” series author and friend to Alfred Wainwright, Mark Richards on three of his favourite walks around Helvellyn. Each walk reveals different and exciting aspects of the Lake District’s third highest mountain; secluded ridges and combes, Brownrigg Well and the iconic Striding Edge. 

This DVD brings a piece of the Lake District to your home, setting future plans in motion for some and rekindling memories for others.


‘LIFE OF A MOUNTAIN: SCAFELL PIKE’

Featuring local authors and broadcasters such as David Powell-Thompson and Eric Robson and internationally known mountain men Alan Hinkes and Joss Naylor, the programme was filmed over a twelve month period and follows the seasons on the mountain from spring lambs through to winter snows with Abraham’s trademark time lapse images providing the transitions between seasons. Through the contributions of the British Mountaineering Council’s Carey Davies and the National Trust the importance of maintaining the landscape quality of England’s highest mountain plays a central role in the film which is introduced by the inspirational shepherdess Alison O’Neill.
